Music Industry Tips from Nathanial Roberts

The Daily Star

---- — 1. Use live performances or YouTube broadcasts to show talent bookers that you’re good at interacting with audiences.

2. Understand that it will take some time to learn to run your own business. Learn about every aspect of a musical career, including booking, generating good publicity, finding and selling merch, and making good deals with venue owners.

3. Write and perform your own music. You’ll have more chance to perform and more value to show record companies as your career grows.

4. Become a positive part of your community and find ways to help it grow by working with other people in the arts. Good things happen when you work together.
